New York, summed up!

New York, United States

Well, my blog is now becoming a retrospective - but I didn't have any wireless access for the majority of the time, and I found out that my dear, dear, special "Bull" Phill passed away on my second day there so, to be frank, it was a bit of a blur, and my levels of motivation were not great..

But, not to put too much of a downer on it... here were some highights.

Um, and I lost the camera that had all my shots so things are a bit sketchy.. (don't judge me, Jan..) :)

1. Lunch at Les Halles, Anthony Bourdain's restaurant. Not very expensive, which was a shock. Very strong martinis, which was another, different, sort of shock.

2. Top Of The Rock - better viewing than the top of the Empire State Building. Probably because you can actually see the Empire State Building!

3. Century 21 - Three words. Cheap. Designer. Labels. I walked out decked in Armani glasses, Michael kors top and .. er.. a Jessica Simpson handbag. Trust me, it's a cool one.

4. MOMA - the Museum of Modern Art has opened at their new digs in Manhattan and it is amazing. There were classic pieces and post-modern works and some really amazing cutting edge pieces dealing with space and light and change of perceptions while looking at it. Some may call it rubbish, but I really enjoyed it.

The BEST was a passageway that was lit in a yellow tone that cancelled out everyone's 3D-ness (new Nat word) and skin tone, so made all the public look like newspaper photos. Kind of like the A-HA video clip "Take On Me".

Yes, you are correct, I did sing it at the time.

You don't know me.

I'm sure NY was great and all but how was Vegas? I bet your friend Dan begged you to update daily. How long have you been home now? S-L-A-C-K-E-R ! ! !
